Red visions of Lace dreams....

Hello my darlings!! I'm back, sorry to have been away for the whole week, but I needed rest as my neck was quite bad and I couldn't do a lot, other than rest & once I did that, I set to getting a lot of work done. But, I will be around to visit your blogs today!
May I present to you my exquisite red lace dress that I was the lucky doll to win from my friend Jenny's Instagram Give-away, this stunning red lace dress was made for me by London designer Alexandra King. Taking inspiration from the 30's, 40's, and 50's, Alexandra creates lush visions of beauty guaranteed to have you looking like the goddess you are! With every dress and accessory a one of a kind design, made to your very desire, you'll be sure to feel simply amazing!
My dress arrived beautifully packaged and I was so excited, I tried it on straight away & it fits so perfectly. Once you have a dress that has been made to your measurements, you can clearly understand why everyone had their clothes made to measure in the olden days. I can't get over how wonderful it is, I adore lace, so having a whole dress of it is a dream!
The quality is impeccable and I can clearly tell Alexandra loves what she does, because it is felt it in every stitch. My dress hangs so wonderfully amongst my other array of vintage dresses, so much so that to the un-trained eye, one might even take it for a proper vintage dress itself & that's what I love the most, having a dress made by someone who loves vintage dresses as much as I do!! You can also purchase actual vintage delights from Alexandra as well as having a dress made for you, I can't recommend it enough, if you have a special event coming up, treating yourself to one of her designs is a must, this is the kind of dress you keep forever - just adore it!! I hope you enjoy the pictures & check out Alexandra's website too, I have too many favourites on there, like these - 1, 2 & 3 - so perfect :) You can say hello to Alexandra here & here too!! Have a great day dolls, I hope it's bliss,

Loves & Loves to your heart

Taste the rainbow!

Happy Monday babes!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, it started as a sunny one here but quickly turned into a rainy one!! Sometimes we can have every season within a half hour of each other, it's a bit crazy!! Soooo...excited for spring to come soon :) But, rain always makes me think of sometimes you have to put up with the rain to see the rainbow! And this same thinking applies in life at times too, we go through the rain, but soon enough a rainbow will come out and brighten up our day! 
It also makes me think of The Wizard of Oz and how I sing the song, 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' to myself when I feel down, it never fails to make me smile. Bright colours such as those found in rainbows can also make a person feel bright even if its not outside or in life.
 Sometimes WE ourselves are the rainbows of colour in someone else's life. We bring our palettes and paint their grays away and make things happy; We can be lights of colour in darkness. I hope that we would go into this new week, not only wearing our wonderful colours, but painting colour in the hearts and souls of everyone we may come to cross paths with & I also hope that colour paints itself on your heart & soul to - because we all deserve rainbows after life's thunderstorms! Have a wonderful Monday beauties!

Loves and Loves
